Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Friday afternoon booked off work.  Sunset is at around half five now - I might even arrive in the light (for the first time?) if I get my skates on.

Important question: is there anywhere Darlo-ish that will be showing the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on the Saturday?

I'd better get the summer bike out then.

Dales Bike Centre at Grinton is probably your best bet. Or Mike's place in Newby.

I'm going to have to pull out :(

The dental hospital have moved my appointment to the Friday and I can't afford to miss it.  Enjoy your trip.

(This is all the result of a faceplant as a teenager.  Silly Karla.)

I'm only 35 miles away, so I really have no excuse not to. Should probably book a room, but probably no rush.

If you call yourself me you'll get a tenner off the room.  Just remember to use my real name though: I didn't book it in the name of Karla Bunbury.

Unfortunately I'm out. Too little money, too much to do at the moment. :(

Sorry to say that I won't be there.  I did a 200k DIY on Tuesday.  Although it was quite a flat route the gusty headwind was hard work on the return trip so I'll be taking it easy this weekend.

There will be studs. There had better not be any visitations- Mr Smith isn't actually available for International Rescue duties tomorrow.

I am afraid that I will have to move myself from the "maybe" pile to the "lightweight" pile. The torn rotator cuff has not healed anywhere near enough to inflict the climb up to the Tan Hill Inn on it - it was bloody painful enough riding up the railway bridge on the way home from work last night!
I've even got studded tyres fitted to the touring bike and everything! Probably need them Tuesday night anyway, unless work is cancelled due to snow and ice!
Born to ride my bike, forced to work! ;)

How you're having a lovely ride. Weather seems cold but bright. I'll bet the views are amazing.

It must be spring, I saw lapwings and loads of nesting birds out on the moors. And lambs!
